Grotto at my house in the Philippines

Ito ang grotto na ipinagawa ko sa harapan nang bahay ko sa Pilipinas. Tuwing umuuwe ako ito ang ginagawa ko sinisigurong malinis ang paligid.

My two sisters, my brother Jojo and one of our friend

A year ago we just have lost our beloved mother and now we have loss our beloved nephew Rommel (my sister charing son), which is really very painful for me, he was the most closes nephew I ever had. I can't forget how really nice and kind my nephew is to me and to my parents and to my two daughters as well. I know that he want us to be together as a family now. No matter what happened in life we know that we all in one. Through the years my eldest sister Charing and myself are both working abroad, that's why we hardly see each other, but this time we finally get sometimes together with our brother and other sister Delia. We went to the church in Manaoag, have break past in BULALOHAN, and we also went to SM in ROSALES Pangasinan. I noticed that they really enjoyed what I have done for them during the time that I was with them, we're all so happy then! We miss our brother Rey which he left here in Saipan. I will make sure that one day we will take our vacation at the same time and we will gave time to our father. Our father was really jealous when he found out that we went to Manaoag and SM Rosales. I don't know what to do or to say when he found out about it, but I said sorry to my dad. I really think I owe my father big one which is hard for me because I don't have anymore time to bring him anywhere, because the next day it was the day to go manila for our flight. My sister charing and I left our house at the same time on Friday afternoon Thank God for bringing me back safe, as well as my sister charing arrived in Israel safe.

Narita Japan

I left Saipan this morning and right now I'm at Narita Japan. while waiting for my flight going to Manila, I'm staying inside the DELTA sky club here at Narita Airport. Glad to have this access of Internet at least I can do some of my work. I was really busy for the whole weekend for our group activities but because of the weather we had to canceled our two cleanups, even though we already at the place where we suppose to do the cleanup, HEAVY RAIN came! we waited for a while and let the RAIN to stop but it didn't for an hours. I always try and gave my very best to do my volunteer work for so many years now, I also been the President for 4 years, I really been thinking of stepping down for I know that some active member should be stepping in because I also believe that some other member should have a chance to be the President. I have ask to the members about my plan but they don't want my idea. Anyway, I told them, sooner or later we all have to go back to our own LAND, and I am very thankful that we have come to Saipan and shared our goal in life like community services during our days off. It's always great when you know how much you work hard for something and people realize that you are valuable person. It's always a blessing when you find the true friendship.

Prayer for OFWs

I offer prayers for those who have left for foreign lands, especially those who are now in CNMI to find work in order to improve the condition of their family. Keep their faith in YOU strong that they may bear with patient love their loneliness in being away from their loved ones, their own familiar culture and our own country. Bless each families and homes that even in this temporary moment of separation, we may all remain united in our love and fidelity to you and to one another. May we take our problems to you with whom we can find a sure guide and help in our every need. BLESS ALL OUR HARD WORK AND SACRIFICES so these may become pleasing to you and lead them to greater dependence on you, the Giver of every good gift and Source of all our strength. Keep us all under your care and protection. Be with us all in our struggles and difficulties. By the witness of our Christian Lives, may we draw other peoples to you especially those who do not believe so that they themselves may become missionaries who spread the Christian faith to other Countries. May we return to you always with praise and thanksgiving in our hearts. Amen

Prayer for those in Authority and who serve in Public Office

GOD our father, bless all those who are in authority that they may dedicate their efforts, talents and abilities to render true service for this nation and its people. Help them not to be overcome by worldly ambition and power. May they be enlightened by the Gospel message:
"Whoever wants to be first must be last of all and servant of all." Aid them with your grace. Guide them with your wisdom and love so that they may uphold and protect the rights of the people. Grant that our leaders may serve with integrity and sincerity. May they turn to you as the ultimate Authority in all of our lives and because YOU alone can lead our land toward lasting prosperity, security and peace. I ask this through our Lord Jesus Christ, Your son, who lives and reigns with you and the holy spirit, one God, forever and ever. Amen.
